Very large hotel, not usually my kind of hotel as I prefer boutique hotels. Good points, my room was excellent, had booked a Junior suite, food was excellent and great variety..Did not watch the shows as we were elsewhere with the wedding party.

The resort was very nice. Clean and good service by all. It was nice only being 10-15 minutes from the airport but not so nice because you were only 10-15 minutes from the airport. Some days planes were flying over every couple of minutes. Had asked for ocean view and never did get them. We saw other people ask also...

My mom, sister, and I had an awesome time in Jamaica here. I had been to Iberostar in Montego Bay as well about 9 years ago, I would say Ibero was 5 stars and Riu was 3.75. The food was awesome, breakfast was a delicious buffet and I especially enjoyed the hash brown potato wedges and cinnamon french toast with...

A nice hotel in Montego Bay, nothing special, but nice. The stand out for this hotel is the fantastic staff, they are so warm and friendly, they really do make you smile. We did not try through a large carte restaurants as the buffet food was excellent. The jerk Hut on the beach is gorgeous, but the queues are ridiculous....

I had an excellent stay at the Riu Montego Bay, 5/6/17-5/13/17. I traveled with my mom and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food... awesome! I can't say enough about the jerk hut. It was a staple everyday for lunch. Around noon as we lay by the pool or beach each day, we'd start smelling the delicious aroma of the...

We came to the Riu to celebrate with family members because it is the hotel of their choice. What a disappointment! The food was good, but the service was horrible. Everyone with the exception of the entertainment team had an attitude or acted as if they didn't want to be at work. They didn't put the customer or the customer's...

Excellent hotel, great pools, with swim up bar. Entertainment staff very friendly meals are good especially Asia restaurant and the little Italy which stays open for late night snacks. Try the catamaran from the hotel beach 4hr trip out to sea scuba diving partying on the boat excellent trip well worth it.

Just got back from a two week stay with friends and this has to be one of the friendliest places to stay we have ever visited, the food in the main buffet restaurant was always plentiful and varied, something for everybody, the 3 speciality restaurants were operated on a first come first served basis and were superb, the range of...
